Hi Ted. I'm really interested in cold shower therapy. Is the Almond Oil one uses the same that aromatherapists use? I imagine it doesn't adhere to the body well though - any techniques? Does one use this for hair cleaning too?

TED FROM BANGOK, CONTRIBUTING EDITOR
On June 29, 2015, Earth Clinic's genius contributor suffered a debilitating stroke in Bangkok, Thailand. Ted is currently recuperating in an government hospital in Bangkok. Learn more about his condition at http://ted.earthclinic.com
Since 2003, Parhatsathid Napatalung (aka Ted from Bangkok, Thailand) has been one of the preeminent expert voices on integrative medical therapies for the EarthClinic.com website, as that site has grown from random blog entry to one of the world's top sites on alternative medicine. The eager and sustained interest Mr. Napatalung draws to his continuing research into alternative and complementary therapies for everything from mange in dogs to suppressing the growth of brain tumors has played a central role in the website's success, but that is nothing to the number of grateful readers who commend his as the one voice that was able to save them from debilitating illness when the rest of the medical profession had failed or given up. With justifiable fondness and esteem, we have come to know Mr. Napatalung more simply as "Ted" from Bangkok.
Ted was born in Bangkok, Thailand and has since returned to that historic metropolis but spent the formative years of his life (1965-1981) in the US, studying in its schools and universities. He is an autodidact in the areas of biochemistry, allopathic medicine, laboratory science, and integrative medicine as the outgrowth of a very personal interest in life-saving treatments standard medicine has ignored or missed out on entirely.
